I was at this computer, checking on Mud-Club and then there's a loud bang outside. I thought nothing of this, as if it was a bin falling over or something.

But then the wife of the ex-Police Office across the road we know of, came over and informed us that a group of lads were pointing and eyeing several cars as they made their way up the street. Then they pointed at my Land Rover, and then went onto the driveway.

One of the cars from the street pulled up the street, and at this time the lads put their hoodies over and the driver of the car didn't notice it. (because the driveway has poor lighting without the outside house lights on)

They went around the Land Rover, and possibly tried to get into it. Soon afterwards there was a loud bang and they ran off, apparently. That loud bang was the noise I had heard while on this computer.

After having looked around, I found the roof that was off my Land Rover and was temporarily stored in front of the caravan at the side of the house, was now wedged into the front of the caravan and there was a big kick mark across the roof.

Why do these fools do these things? Regardless of the law, if I did catch any of them going for anything of mine again they would certainly enjoy a good beating. :shake:

Unfortunately now I will have to be very careful about the Land Rover, as they know of it and they're highly likely to be locals. I've had a lot of trouble in previous years with some local-ish people who I have recently seen around the area again.

Any suggestions on what to do? I keep the rotor arm out of the engine's distributor so they can't easily get away with it. But they're more likely to do what they can to damage it, as proven by kicking my Land Rover's roof into the caravan.
 
Re: ******* Chavs/Scrotes

At the end of the day Rich if they want to cause damage they will unless you can lock the Landie away out of sight.

What have they got to fear, standing up in court and getting a laughable fine that they won't pay anyway.

A hug from David Cameron? That'd be scary!

Welcome to another facet of life with Labour - tough on crime my ....! They've only been tough on the victims.

little scrotes

Re: ******* Chavs/Scrotes

Yes, and sorry about the language that was used in the topic title.

I know there's a place opposite my mum's house, and there are usually a small group of hoodies about there, either in or out of the house there. I usually drive past there with the Land Rover, and they have turned and watched me drive past before.... But I can't think of what's so appealing about my Land Rover? It's 36 years old, hardly new.

But on the other hand, knowing the mentality of these types in general, they probably just think "LAND ROVER" and think of the current Td5 Defender and are incapable of reading number plates. :rolleyes:
 
Re: ******* Chavs/Scrotes

rich get your self a security light.
really.

Already got one (well actually, there's three around the house), and have done for years. But it didn't stop them. :(
 
Re: ******* Chavs/Scrotes

Good advice!! May be worth a dummy/real cctv camera an all! Cheap as chips these days!

Probably will get a dummy one.

I still can't figure out what was so appealing about my Land Rover though?:confused:
 
Re: ******* Chavs/Scrotes

We had some chaves around our area last year, they where petrol bombing a dairy :eek: no one got charged for it though. they seem to get away with anything.
 
Re: ******* Chavs/Scrotes

No Rich, a dummy dog will not work:D

We have a village idiot here, one man crime wave. If it isn't bolted down, he'll have it. Or petty vandalism, etc.

Yes they do get away with too much. I know this from secondary school where I had been attacked by people who had weapons in hand. What did they get when stopped while they went for me? One week suspension, and perhaps a free holiday because they were mistreated. Then aren't I getting mistreated because they're intentions are to do as much harm as possible to me? So if I am, then can I kill them? Because I know I would take it to the point where they'd not be far off death if I didn't have to restrain myself!

I will be most pleased when these people who are no better than scum are put back in their place.

Sorted, fear not.

I hope you find a solution Rich. A friend of mine fell foul of the law, he filmed some vandals, took the video evidence to the law, who then told him it was an offense to do that. Seemingly you have to warn the people you are filming that you have security cameras...

In fact, a dummy camera or two, and a couple of notices may do the trick for you.
 
Sorry to hear of your problems Rich - I know how vulnerable you probably feel. The interest they have in your Landie is both simple and complex. Your 88" looks (from the photographs) just what it is; an unusual, but obviously well cared for motorcar that is clearly a treasured possession and the scrotes hate that, because for a thousand reasons they will never have the same thing. Mostly because they feel the world owes them a living and no-one is going to come along with a truck load of Land Rovers to give away.

The reasons they feel that way and resent anyone having and keeping anything nice, is so complex we'd need the LRUK psychologist to analyse it! Don't wind them up, but make it clear you are keeping an eye on them. If they get close enough - try taking digital photgraphs of them, especially at night. The flash might worry them a bit.:D Anybody asks, just say your PIR security light is malfunctioning and only flashes.

Roger.
 
Statigicly (sp?) place an assortment of short rusty nails within the boundry of your property, (pointy side up) doing your best to ensure they will not become part of the postman or milkmans main route to your front door. In the vicinity of your Landy. Chavs tend to wear trainers rather than proper boots, they may not enjoy hurting their feet in the dark. It's going to depend on the type of drive you have obviously.
